Whilst assembling a refurbished (e-bay) RS mirror pod this morning, I figured that it was designed for a gasket between the indicator lens and the body. Neither of my bikes have these gaskets, but, out of interest, I made one from 3mm expanded neoprene cord (it's much softer than O ring cord) and it fits and works perfectly.

So, my question is; were any bikes fitted with such a sealing strip or was it a design idea that was scrapped before production?

It does hold the lens securely and should reduce any vibration wear between the plastic components.

Paul.

Strange, it normally should be a gasket there.

Part # 46 63 1 455 046, and if I remember correctly it's of a rather soft material.

Hi there, BMW mirror body parts come with the gasket.
They are also very fragile and tend to pop out on potholes with disregard of the incoming trucks, so a safety line is higly advisable.
Best regards

Thanks Inge, as you say, strange that my bikes don't have them, so I'll have to make some for the other pods.

Paul.
